“Sacrifice a thank offering to God, and pay your vows to the Most High. Call on Me in a day of trouble; I will rescue you, and you will honor Me.””
Psalms 50:14-15 HCSB
God does not want my offerings of duty with a begrudging heart. He longs to have me sincerely give over my whole being to Him in gratitude for His own sacrifice. My outward being matters not if my my inward person is filled with pride, prejudice, and dishonesty.
Surrendering my heart to Him means trusting Him with my troubles and concerns while giving up my selfish desires to have things my way. This means the “rescue” He promises might not look the way I am expecting or dictating to Him in my prayers. But His deliverance will stop me in my tracks and have me falling on my knees in worship to honor Him.
Are you having difficulty letting go of your picture of how you thought things should look at this point in life? Turn that messiness over to the One who loves you and desires to disentangle you from the world’s trappings of what you thought life should be to offer you something the best. 🚦
